You will need to do a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair won't take, the reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If the hard drive will not format, or you have any issues during or after the install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

Turns on boots on acer page to 75% then goes to windows XP then a blue page with some writing that's so fast I cant' read it then back to Acer page again and so the cycle continues.

Any suggestions, if I need to update BIOS how do I do that - was suggested on another site.

If you are unable to boot into safe mode by tapping F8 during the IBM splash screen then you will need a windows Install disc to boot off of and fix your boot command.

Continuous windows xp startup failure


That's usually caused by a bad system driver. Next time it boots to the "start windows normally" page, select 'safe mode'. If the system boots well in safe mode, you can start from there by replacing the drivers from the system board on up until you've solved the problem.

Cannot reboot IBM thinkpad t-21


There must be some driver you have installed recently. Try booting in safe mode and restore your system to an earlier date.
